ARBOR WEEK is an annual celebration of trees with free events for all ages.  This year we have over twenty events taking place throughout the week.  The public is invited to learn more about trees and why they are so important to us; how to plant and care for trees; and to simply experience the joy and health benefits that comes from spending time in nature.  ARBOR WEEK is focusing on the amazing power of trees and nature to enhance healing and boost mental, social and physical health.  We also consider the benefits of growing trees for healthy food production as well as mitigating climate to cool our city – an important part of keeping us healthy and ensuring we have a sustainable environment for the future.

ARBOR WEEK 2023 TREE PLANTING DAY – A LIVING OUTDOOR CLASSROOM.  This year our major planting event takes place just after Arbor Week on Thursday, June 1st, 9:00am to 3:00pm.  SOS Trees Coalition has partnered with Sutherland School, One Tree Planted, Zak’s Hardware and Building Centre and Dutch Growers to plant trees and incorporate a living outdoor classroom area.  Students will be hands on doing the planting with coaching and assistance from SOS Trees members as well as parents and other volunteers.
